Kate Winters has won immortality.

But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it.

Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he' s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.

Henry's first wife, Persephone.

Even though it took me forever to get around to reading The Goddess Test, I picked up Goddess Interrupted right after I finished the first book. And while I really enjoyed The Goddess Test, I liked Goddess Interrupted even more.

After a summer spent traveling around Greece with James, Kate Winters is ready to go back hom to Eden to see her mother. And to finally be with Henry. Six months apart was a long time and Kate can't wait to spend time with Henry. Except that when she gets back, Henry starts to pull away, and Kate can't figure out why. And right when she's about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, a dark force attacks the gods, taking Henry prisoner. Kate will do anything to get Henry back. Even got to the one person who could ruin everything with Henry. Her sister and Henry's first wife. Persephone.

When I read The Goddess Test, it was a story I really enjoyed and by the time I finished reading it, I was very much looking forward to reading the sequel. And I loved Goddess Interrupted. While the first book had some measure of action in it, Goddess Interrupted was filled with it. Almost right from the beginning there was something happening and it didn't let up until the end. That's what made me like Goddess Interrupted even more than The Goddess Test. With this second book, Aimée Carter really stepped it up and it made for a very good read. I can't wait to see where she takes it all in the next book.

Kate also stepped it up in this book. Despite soem moments where she doubted herself, she had definitely grown. Of course she still doesn't understand everything about the family she's discovered she had, Kate is is getting there she's not afraid to do just about anything for them, most of all Henry. And Henry is a frustrating person. But at the end of the day I can sort of understand where he's coming from. Most of all, I loved being able to see more of James and Ava. Both of them are characters I really like. Sometimes I even find myself rooting for James because he deserves to be happy and I can tell he really cares about Kate. And Ava definitely amuses me, though after the ending, I have my doubts about her.

I loved reading Goddess Interrupted. In this second book, Aimée Carter has really stepped it up and I can't wait to see where it all goes in the next book. And if you're looking for a good summer read, I strongly recommend Goddess Interrupted.

  1. Another member of Team James here! I'm still convincing myself to continue with this series since I was quite disappointed with The Goddess Test but James is totally saving it for me. (: I'm looking forward to see Persephone mixing into things. Lovely review! (:
